The legendary IRONbike returns, from 22 to 29 July 2023, the one-of-a-kind mountain bike stage race, capable of giving unparalleled emotions. Over 600 km and 27,000 meters of difference in altitude on the paths of the majestic Western Alps, mountains that do not forgive, demanding and technical routes between stony ground and tiny ledges that only give the illusion of a passage, between peaks, lakes, glaciers and often still present snowfields. Now in its 28th edition, after a year’s break, the IRONbike starts again, there will be no shortage of news, but there will always be something more that places it in the impossible dream and in the myth of adventure.
The IRONBike offers a hardcore week of mountain bike racing in the glorious surroundings of the Italian Alps. Over seven stages and eight days, you’ll cover 700km in distance and 22km of climbs and will be spending up to 12 hours a day on your bike. With only 50% of riders surviving the week, it’s fair to say this isn’t the first stage race you should enter. The Iron Bike will test you through high-altitude climbs, technical descents and special timed stages. You may not be able to walk properly for a week at the end of the race but you’ll be left with a smug sense of achievement having tackled one of the sternest challenges on two wheels.
